I will walk among you and be your God, and you will be my people.Leviticus 26:12
Who is God?
He is Lord, creator of the universe, and sustainer of life on earth. He is eternal, infinite, unchangeable, glorious, wise, just, slow to anger, merciful, compassionate, and abounding in steadfast love. Some of the great historical statements of faith of the church say that God is three persons in one, is everywhere yet has no body as we do, knows all and can do all.
God is so great and so amazing that we could never finish defining and describing who and what He is. The problem is, the word god has worked its way into our everyday conversations so much that its awesome meaning has been cheapened.
One word, three letters. God. The weight of this term is so heavy that we would be fools to use it in vain. Yet nearly everyone does.
When we say “God” with the Trinitarian Lord in mind, we recapture that sense of honor and glory that He deserves. After all, were it not for Him, there would be no words to express His wonder and majesty at all. His very Word became flesh and lived among us. God has drawn near!
Take time to get to know the God who is merciful and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
